Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

We will still have to pay him every penny of the signing bonus

Teams may be willing to give us decent compensation for a good pass rusher with a cheap contract.

Just an FYI: Junior's contract shows to be history on Spotrac. I have no idea what that means but that site updates info quickly.

III. Restructure

Junior Galette

2015 Cap Number: $15.45 M

The biggest cap space can be gained by a very simple maneuver with Junior Galette's contract. Galette is due a $12.5 million roster bonus on the first day of the new league year. By converting that to a signing bonus, the Saints will gain $10 million in cap space. This will add an additional $3 million in cap charges in the final four years of the contract.

Projected Move: Restructure contract

Cap Savings: $10 Million

now pack him up for a pick. a player or part of a package in a draft day trade
So we convert Galette's contract to save the 10 million in cap space, then...

Wrap him in a crimson, gold bow to Washington for an exchange of first round picks...

In fact, they can throw in a Round 4 pick being we're picking up the tab for 2015...

They get their Orakpo replacement in a league sack leader with one year free rental, and...

We get a shot at getting some true 3-4 personnel...

The amazing thing about all this is that Hagan, Danno and Jeanpierre actually worked this out together...

Ah, the wonder of what Saints fans can accomplish when working together...

Now, Everybody is happy, happy...

Loomis can just schlep the numbers, we've got the personnel strategy covered here...

Agreed, I like that train of thought and glad coach seems to be on that page also.

Without him I don't see how it could get much worse. It's not like we drop off a cliff. We did that last season. Maybe go from horrible to very horrible...an F is an F, you will be in summer school either way.

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

1. I am missing the actual quote from Payton. More media speculation
2. and other than the 'this years' teammates are better than 2010' have we seen other evidence of him spouting off in the locker room?

slow off-season = rumor mill at fever pitch

Yes these boys are scratching under rocks for any news they can get out of the Bayou.

Re: Payton wants to release Galette?

Pretty foolish to want to get rid of our best defensive player...

Gallete is guilty of not keeping good company. If you actually kept up with the reports coming out you'd know the charges and lawsuit is BS. The only thing JR did wrong was buy in to the hype like everyone else.

Or the best if your not being biased. It's not my opinion it's PFFs rating as him being our only elite defensive player last year.
